Monochromatic Happiness

Today's Limited Supplies Challenge at SCS was Simply Monochromatic. I love monochromatic cards even though I don't usually make them. The catch with this challenge was you couldn't use any embellishments! That was tough for me because I usually ALWAYS add ribbon. I wanted to add some paper piercing, but I thought maybe that was considered an embellishment. Another thing I did with this card that I never do (because I can't get my brain to work with them) is add flourishes. I think the patterned paper made me do it! :) I'm not sure if they work, but that square piece of cardstock behind the flower looked so "nekkid"! Thanks for stopping by! I hope your weekend is off to a great start! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Pick a Petal, Rhonna Farrer Flourishes; Ink- Not Quite Navy, Basic Black; Paper- Not Quite Navy, Wild Asparagus; Accessories- circle punches, oval punch.
